Bout-of-Books 8.0 Progress

BoutOfBooks-880x400-03

I think I may have outdone myself this time as far as book choices go. ūüėČ Right now I have 11 books to chose from. I know that I won’t be reading all 11, but half the fun for me is not knowing exactly which book is coming next. I have a couple on my list that are review books that I have promised to read this week, but the rest are just for fun. (You can view my Goals Post Here¬†to see which books I currently plan on reading.) My ‘no goal’ goal strategy during the last Bout-of-Books worked well, so that’s how I’m planning to attack my reading this time. I’ll still keep track of the pages and number of books I read, but this way I will be under absolutely no pressure – except for my promise to review every book as soon as it’s read. It should be interesting to see if the no-goal approach works as well for Bout-of-Books 8.0 as it did for Bout-of-Books 7.0. I’ll also be visiting and checking on as many progress pages as I can, so be prepared to be stalked! In a very friendly, non-creepy way, of course. Good luck everyone and whatever your goals are, don’t forget to have fun! ūüėČ

  1. i really don’t see how you manage to read several books at once, i got too immersed in them for something like that.
    today was slow but we got a lot of storm so i didn’t want to red something too short because then i would need to write teh review before jumping on next book ^^ but i had some low days too ( hope i will read aLOT) tomorrow to make it up for it

  2. WOW!! You’ve been a reading machine!! Good for you!! ūüôā Although I do wish BOB would have started THIS Monday (once my oldest is back to school), I am happy to read when I can, even if it isn’t that much, and spend my last days of summer vacation having fun with my boys :).

    I’m brainstorming my blog change still…and once I have it figured out, I will be contacting you ;).

    Enjoy your final day!!!

    • Not reading quite as fast this time, but one of my books is 703 pages. It’s long, but it’s good. ūüėČ I’m just plugging away! Enjoy the rest of your summer. It’s been beautiful here this weekend. Happy reading!
